Former WWE star Chris Jericho jobs on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ (w/video)

Chris Jericho’s dancing days are over.

After posting the lowest score of the seven remaining couples on “Dancing with the Stars” Monday night, Jericho was eliminated from the competition on Tuesday night’s results show.

Jericho and partner Cheryl Burke had received a score of 22 (two sevens and an eight) from the judges for their tango performance.

Jericho had a nice run on the show – he survived the first four cuts – and it was terrific exposure for him. Now the question on the minds of wrestling fans everywhere is: Will Jericho come back to WWE, and if so, when?

Jericho indicated recently that he would return to WWE when he was done with DWTS, so hopefully he’ll be back sooner than later. When he does return, my guess is that he will be a babyface and feud with The Miz.

Grrrrrrrr. Not really your fault. I'm behind on my DVR shows, and to me, you accidently let the cat out of the bag. Thank god I dont have to watch that show anymore. I'm actually shocked, that the WWE Universe never generated a palethra of votes for Y2J. Edge retires, Jericho returns. oh happy day!

I think I saw the Miz was in the audience last night and was shown at one point.

It's mind boggling that Jericho went home before Kendra =/

As for his return, after this run I don't think he can come back as anything but a face.

The Rock celebrating his birthday next Monday. Jericho is no longer at DWTS. Both known to make waves with Y2J's first appearance in WWE in 1999.

MUCH sooner than later, peeps.

Yes highly disappointed. Only watched the show for Jericho. Will free up my Mondays and Tuesdays now. Just finished his second book. He now needs to save the WWE for a 3rd time so I can get my fix.

I would have loved to see Jericho put Len goodman in the Walls of Jericho before he left.

You don't see him feuding with Punk?

Kevin, do you have any footage of the second night when they let him go? I'd be interested to see how Chris handled it and if he 'went in character'. If you could post that, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

A Jericho return and feud with Miz could be quite "entertaining".

Maybe the universe watched the draft before voting and realized that the deluge of heels on Mondays meant that the WWE needed Y2J on Raw more than DWTS needed him.

Chris did very well in fan votes he said that .It was the stupid judges their all a**holes.

After his elimination, Jericho vowed to never, EVER do the tango a-gain.
Hope to see him back in the entertainment ring trying to out-entertain all the other WWE superstars very soon.
